Morning Glories - SNSDC51

This week's Sweet 'n Sassy Digi challenge is to make a project inspired by this quote from Thomas Tusser,  "Sweet April showers do spring May flowers."  I've really liked this Morning Glory digi stamp ever since I first saw it.

I colored them with my copics and then did a very brave thing....I used the telescoping image technique to layer it.  Whew!  It turned out OK and I didn't ruin my images.  You can find a great telescoping image tutorial by Beate Johns.  I used Papertake Weekly Sketch #67 for the card front.

I went back & forth trying to decide whether to use a sentiment on the front.  In the end, I decided to leave it plain. I used a Spellbinders M-bossabilities folder and highlighted the embossing with a sponge dauber and some distress ink.  Some pearls, liquid pearls, a border punch and an organdy bow finished it off.

I did some interior decorating on this card and used the Psalm 30:5b digi stamp for the sentiment.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific, Recollections
Patterned Paper:  Echo Park (Times & Seasons)
Stamps:  Sweet & Sassy Digis (Morning Glory, Psalm 30:5b)
Ink:  Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Antique Linen, Tea Dye)
Embellishments/Tools:  Ribbon Trends organdy ribbon, Recollections pearls, Liquid Pearls (buttercup), Fiskars border punch (Apron Lace), Spellbinders (M-bossabilities (Whimsy A), Lacey Squares, Labels 3)

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
